While spring game szn kicked off last weekend, it was in full swing this weekend (April 12 & 13) as over 50 spring scrimmages went down from coast to coast.
How could you possibly wrap your head around everything that happened? By keeping it locked on FloFootball of course. Over the next week, well be releasing roundups of the biggest storylines broken down by conference.
The Sooners kicked off the weekend with a little Friday night lights action as Oklahoma fans got their first look at Jalen Hurts in the
crimson blue and cream.
Jalen Hurts was very impressive in his spring game debut completing 11 of his 14 passes. Here's a glimpse of his performance.— Sooner Gridiron (@soonergridiron) April 13, 2019

Also on display, was a pair of five-star early enrollee wideouts. Two of Theo Wease's three receptions were touchdowns.
While he never got in the endzone, Trejan Bridges still made his presence felt as he hauled in 3 passes for 76 yards.
Not only did the crowd of 50,000 get a show on the field, but country star Lee Brice also performed for the Sooner faithful.
While Oklahoma's spring game was full of offensive fireworks, the Longhorns game was all about defense. QB1 Sam Ehlinger struggled to get much going as he was just 9-of-21 passing for 66 yards and threw a not great near pick six.
The biggest story of the game was four-star early enrollee running back Jordan Whittington who carried the ball twelve times for 62 yards.
Not to be outdone by their rivals to the north, Texas had Ludacris perform to make up for the dullness of their spring game.
Check out complete highlights from Saturday night in Austin.
The Neal Brown era at West Virginia got started in front of 19,000 fans, the third-highest attended spring game in WVU history.
Although Brown has not named a starter at quarterback, Oklahoma transfer Austin Kendall ran with the first-team offense the entire game. Kendall finished the day 7-of-12 for 154 yards and a score.
Kendall was great with the play action and zone reads all afternoon and even scored a touchdown on the ground.
However, the biggest story of the afternoon came when the Mountaineers unveiled their new uniforms.
Former star quarterback Rasheed Marshall and current Oakland Raider safety Karl Joseph returned to model the Mountaineers new gray jerseys.
Check out complete highlights from Morgantown.
The Red Raiders finished off their three-week spring tour (TTU held scrimmages in Lubbock and Midland the past two weekends) with a high scoring affair inside The Star in Frisco. Apparently, even in the spring defense is optional at Tech as the "offensive team" beat the "defensive team, "49-47.
Alan Bowman appears to have a strong lead in the quarterback race as he once again balled out throwing for 220 yards and two scores.
Some nasty thunderstorms forced the Baylor spring game indoors but that didn't stop the bears from getting a 70 play scrimmage in. Unlike most teams around the country, head coach Matt Rhule also allowed the defense to hit the quarterback to make it more game-like. The scrimmage was closed to the public and Baylor did not provide official stats. Check out some of the only highlights you can find of the game.
Baylor became the second Big 12 school to unveil new uniforms this weekend and much like West Virginia, they are going back to a cleaner and simpler look.
Gone is legendary coach Bill Snyder and Wildcat fans got their first look at new head coach Chris Klieman's squad Saturday. Unlike the teams above, Kansas State did not have a true spring game. K-State called it a "Spring Showcase."
The refs called this one out of bounds, but we're counting it. Former quarterback Sammy Wheeler’s transition to tight end appears to be going very well.
Junior wide receiver Wykeen Gill turned out on the jets for this 55-yard touchdown pass.
One thing that was clear from the scrimmage was that Skyler Thompson is going to be QB1. Thompson looked sharp and confident. If the Wildcats want to return to a bowl game, Thompson needs to improve greatly in 2019.
Check out complete highlights from the "Spring Showcase."
The Mad Hatter is back in college football and will be the next man to take a shot at turning around Kansas football. Les Miles may not be able to right the ship in Lawrence, but with Miles on the sideline, it will be most watch.
The 5,000 fans in attendance saw running backs Khalil Herbert and Dom Williams both break the century mark and combine for three touchdowns.

However, the story of the night was the fact that Rick Ross performed after the game.
